LX navigation Cup 03 may 2014 10 may 2014
Dezső Katona n n A sad loss, Dezső, the Alföldi marshal, left us last autumn. We will miss him, but we won’t forget him: Let us give him a minute of silence as a remembrance.
Purpose of this „contest”: § The aim of this „gathering” is for you, friends and pilots, to gain experience from one another, and for the exchange of information. All of you will receive information about the latest LX Navigation products. § Though it is now a Cat 2 IGC registered competition, and pilots will be looking for points, we want to maintain the friendly atmosphere that is a trade mark of this place: this is in no way „a cut-throat contest”. All of you have been invited to take part in this event. The entry fee will be covered by the two sponsors, the LX Navigation owner, Crtomir , and Aeroclub Alföldi. Other sponsors will donate the comp. Ludek (Czech team) will manage the scoring and the bar, in. In which order, we don’t know yet !!! lf penalties (and there will be penalties, I assure you) will be given in points, drinks (ex. beer), and various „tasks”. This means that you, the participants, are expected to act in the most sportsman-like manner. We would be sorry to have to expel anybody for a purposeful breach of any rules. This is an FAI competition though.
You will have to respect three main rules : 1 - Respect the airspace specifications of the day. Two violations, and you will be asked to become a crew member for other „disciplined” pilots. 2 - Use of the airport : You may have noticed, this is a grass airfield, so please, use your car only to bring your glider on the grid, or bring it back to its parking place once you have pushed it out of the runway ! We insist on keeping the airport area clean. If you really want to smoke, then there is a designated area. Throwing a cigarette butt on the ground will cost you a case of beer, plus a session of picking up cigarette butts. 3 – Dinner starts at 7 sharp every evening, except for today due to the opening ceremony. Being late for dinner is a penalty (we need money for the closing party). Participating to the dinners is mandatory!!
Grid: § Gridding is „free”, meaning that for a smooth running, the Open Class ships will grid first from 08. 00 till 08. 30 at the far end of the take-off area, then the 18 M Class from 08. 30 till 09. 00, in front of the Open Class. And the rest of the competition will grid last, from 09. 00, up front. §In case we start to the south, there will be two grids : the one you know, starting from the hangar (runway 16), and the one beside where the Antonovs are at the moment (runway 18).
Towing and take-offs: § Towing : Towing is up to 600 meters in the west of the airfield. Two tow-planes, one Pawnee, one Cmelak, will bring you into a thermal as often as possible. § Relights : If you need a relight, please radio your need in advance on 123: 2 the competition frequency, and land on the runway which will be mentioned in the morning. § Runways : two of them. 16/34 with 880 m and 18/36 with 700 m § Usually take-offs will be on 16/18, and landings on 34/36. §As much as possible, please avoid the sandy patches, which are nevertheless quite safe.
Arrival procedure: § Radio your competition number 10 kilometres out, on 123, 200 MHz. The centre of the finish circle (one kilometre radius) is 4 kilometres away from the airfield, between Szeged and Szatymaz. You are required to enter the finish cylinder above 400 m QNH. The name of the checkpoint is „ingyensör” – meaning „free beer”. The pilots who can pronounce the name of the finish point in now perfect Hungarian, will get one, only one, free beer – after landing. To benefit of the beer, Hungarian pilots will have to say this in Slovenian, „Zastonj pivo”.
Safety: n n n You are over thirty pilots. It is thus very important that you : 1 -Make a long landing when there is a bunch of gliders arriving at the same time. 2 - Clear the runway ASAP. 3 - Help the pilots landing behind you. 4 - Wait after the rush to bring your glider to her spot !!
Landings: n Normal landings (direct or over flight, joining the runway in use, landing pattern west of the runway) will be on the main runway (16 -34). If there are several gliders landing at the same time, then please make long landings, a really long-long one, to the very end of the runway, and wait for the others to land as well, before towing your glider back to its parking place. After landing, you are always required to pull your glider out of the runway. Pilots should help one another moving the gliders off the runway. In case the main runway is fully occupied, the secondary runway (18 -36) is then available.
Emergency landings: la nd a ar bl ea e la nd ab le ar ea n (in case of engine failure or cable break) To the north, there is an emergency landable strip (200 m) north of the airfield, north-east of runway 18/36.
Emergency landings: (in case of engine failure or cable break) n To the south, there is another green area, between the railway and the industrial plant. The area between the plant and the south of the airfield is absolutely un-landable area
Briefings: n n Briefing will take place every morning in the „castle”, at 10 am in the club house. During the competition we will use the FAI rules and the Hungarian HC list. All important information will be available on the task sheet. It is of the utmost importance that no-one infringes any of the forbidden airspaces ! Especially the military zone at Kecskemét (MTCR) and the Paks Atomic Plant. Though, due to the excellent relations with the military (thanks Attila !) we will be allowed to penetrate the area below 1200 m QNH with a position report. Agreements about this, will be posted on the task sheet of the day
Miscellaneous (various): Do not use your car to go to the „rest rooms” Rest means rest !! So, tire yourself a little, walk before you get there…, and get some rest ! n We have a new shower room (3 persons, not in the same shower please) in the camping area n Once your glider is on the grid, please move your car into the forest, or to the parking area. No car should be in front of the starting gliders. n Internet : Internet is available everywhere on the airfield. There is no need for a password anymore. 1 - SZATYMAZ AIRPORT WIFree 2 - Briefing_room 3 - Camping n Drinks : there is a slate for your orders at the „pub”: Give your name to the „bar-tender”. n
Szeged airport and airspace: n n Within a 5 km radius from the airport, if you are under 800 m QNH, call them on 122. 8. If you have to land there, you should say it was an „emergency a” landing, due to safety reasons. Otherwise, they will charge you !!
Szatymaz airport: n n n n There is a new electric gate. To activate it, you are requested to give your mobile phone number to Gergő. Calling the gate number will open it. It automatically shuts after 30 seconds. NEW : this airport is under constant improvement (penalties pay for it !! And Peter indeed) Excellent ice creams are now available by the „castle” We have a not-new beer pipeline (two brews) at „Viktoria’s Beer House” Last but not least : a new coffee machine!! Coffee is available at the „Castle” from 0730, breakfast from 0800 until some time in the afternoon: When the „Castle” close, we open „Viktoria’s Beer House”. We’ll have to wait a little for the new sauna and swimming pool….
